Descending Stories: Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju, Volume 7: The Tides of Change

By Haruko Kumota

Yotaro’s reputation as the third-generation Sukeroku spreads, and he’s getting steady work on both TV and at the yose. Higuchi, overjoyed to see Yotaro satisfy so many people, longs to create new rakugo stories with him, though it’s heresy in Yakumo’s eyes. Yakumo plans to take his own rakugo to the grave, but when he collapses during a performance, he finds his desires may once again be thwarted.
